Soak up the view at Shiroyama Observatory, a viewing platform located on a hill in the downtown area. Take a walk (or taxi) up the hill to reach the popular vantage point with an extensive view of the surrounding area. See the busy, knotted downtown part of the city, the shimmering bay, and the volcanoes cutting into the sky behind it. Rich in history and hikes, the hill deserves further exploration (just as soon as you can tear yourself away from the vista). By using our Kagoshima journey planner, you can arrange your visit to Shiroyama Observatory and other attractions in Kagoshima.
